From Strength to Strength: GT Cup Championship and Pirelli Extend Agreement

Bute Motorsport and Pirelli are pleased to announce the continuation of their successful partnership, with global tyre manufacturer Pirelli remaining as the exclusive sole tyre supplier and sponsor to the GT Cup Championship, until 2028.

The Italian tyre manufacturer has supported Bute Motorsport and the GT Cup Championship for many years, with this renewed collaboration solidifying the commitment from both parties to deliver high-performance racing experiences and foster innovation in motorsport.

Bute Motorsport is the dynamic motorsport organisation and driving force behind the prestigious GT Cup Championship motorsport series, first founded as a premium GT sprint series. Under their stewardship, the GT Cup Championship continues to thrive as a premier destination for drivers and teams seeking exhilarating competition, technical innovation and a passionate community of motorsport fans.

Bute Motorsport has the utmost confidence in Pirelli to continue to offer the best complete solution for the championship. It is thanks to the renewed sponsorship and tyre supply deal that Pirelli will continue to provide a range of slick and wet tyres to competitors, tailored to the needs of each entrant. Pirelli will also remain on-hand to provide invaluable technical support and advice on their widely recognised products in the world of motorsport.

As Bute Motorsport and Pirelli embark on this renewed journey together, both brands extend their gratitude to the drivers, teams and fans who continue to make the GT Cup racing series a vibrant and thrilling spectacle – here’s to enhancing the racing experience and taking the series to even greater heights.

Christopher Haynes, Bute Motorsport Managing Director: “It's fantastic to be renewing our brilliant partnership with Pirelli. This long-standing relationship has supported us, and our teams for many years and we're excited for it to continue. Maintaining a collaboration of this calibre can only be a positive thing for our sport as we assist each other in the development of our offerings for teams, and we look forward to working together with the Pirelli team for another five seasons."

Jonathan Wells, Pirelli UK Motorsport Manager, said: “We are delighted to continue our support of the GT Cup and extend our long-standing successful relationship with Bute Motorsport. It’s a collaboration that has consistently delivered outstanding results on and off the racetrack. We look forward to another exciting chapter and are committed to continuing to deliver for the GT Cup – a championship that truly aligns with Pirelli’s premium, prestige and high performance benchmarks.”
